Negligence in a legal sense is defined as a careless act done by a person that causes injury or harm to another person. This is one of the more common personal injury claims that law firms see. The concept of negligence is hard to measure but can be proven in a court of law. This term knows no boundaries and can come into play in many accidents where there are two parties involved – the person who’s been hurt and the person who may or may not be at fault for the injury. Sometimes it’s not a matter of individuals, but the larger responsibility of an organization that people go up against, and that’s when you need a good lawyer on your side.    

The Davis Law Group was founded on that exact principle — fairly representing people in negligence cases and getting them the compensation they deserve for consequential costs. Our lawyers work hard to help victims cover costs after an incident. While money can’t always fix what’s been broken or lost, it can certainly help the situation. We pride ourselves on understanding that our clients come to us at times of need and not always under positive circumstances. Our staff is dedicated to being sensitive to each situation and to manage client needs throughout the litigation process. 

Unfortunately negligence can happen — and we’re always here to help our clients when it does.

Negligence cases

In order to prove negligence, there are five main elements needed for a case:

  • A duty of care owed by the defendant to the defendant  
  • A breach of that duty
  • A notable connection between the defendant and the resulted harm caused
  • Proximate cause – whether there was known risk that could have been avoided
  • Damages resulting from the defendant’s conduct

Duties vary depending on the case. For example, if it is the duty of a doctor to provide proper care to a patient and that is not provided, it’s negligence. Or, if someone was working at a warehouse and there were not properly trained machinery operators or safety precautions in place, that could be deemed negligence on the part of the company, the equipement, or the individuals involved. 

If you believe your illnesses or injuries have been caused by the negligent actions of another party, it’s time to get attorneys involved. Facts alone cannot win a case so it’s best to let a lawyer get involved. It is necessary to gather all of the incident details to prove where the negligence lies and hopefully prove that had there been more procedural actions taken to avoid whatever may have caused the accident, the injury would not have happened. We’ve seen a lot of negligence cases walk through our doors and have been successful in representing the people who come to us with their cases.
